Parents of International Students

Greetings from Webster University!

Your daughter or son is about to begin a life-changing experience. As a parent, we know you would like to be sure your son or daughter has a maximum opportunity to learn and stay in a safe environment. Webster University provides the following services to make sure your son’s or daughter’s transition and experience is a positive one:

  • International Student Orientation – to help students familiarize themselves with the campus, American culture, U.S. immigration regulations, and Webster University services offered to students.
  • Immigration Advising - students will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with an international student advisor or talk on the phone with an international student advisor regarding immigration issues on a regular basis
  • Academic Advising - students will be assigned academic advisors who will guide them in selection of courses throughout their program of studies.
  • Health Insurance - Students will be enrolled in the mandatory Webster University sponsored health insurance plan from our Health Services Office so that they may have adequate health insurance coverage while studying at Webster University.
  • Academic Support – Our Academic Resource Center provides tutoring and other academic support services to students.
  • Safety - Webster University is a safe campus environment where your children will thrive in a supportive environment. In the St. Louis campus we have the officers from the Public Safety Office who patrol the campus twenty-four hours a day to ensure the safety of all students living on campus.
  • Cultural Adjustment – We understand that the transition to a new culture can be an enormous challenge. Therefore,  we offer services through several offices to assist students during this process. During International Student Orientation cultural adjustment issues are discussed.
